U.S. Sues American Co. For Requiring
Workers to Speak English

Judicial Watch, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/2/2014 11:52:35 AM

(WISCONSIN)– The United States government is actually suing a private American business for discriminating against Hispanic and Asian employees because they don’t speak English on the job. It involves a Green Bay Wisconsin metal and plastic manufacturer that fired a group of Hmong and Hispanic workers over their English skills, “even though those skills were not needed to perform their jobs,” according to the feds. More importantly, forcing employees to speak English in the U.S. violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, says the Obama administration. Here’s the twisted explanation from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the

We are being attacked from all sides from the tyrannical Obama regime!! I knew they were going to be bad, but this surpasses anything I could have imagined. If only they were as creative in doing good things for this country rather than committing their evil, malevolent acts.

Gee, what about airline pilots who are required to speak English?

The other sad part of this - if I´m a small businessperson and I see the suit even if I don´t want to discriminate against someone, will a potential lawsuit subconsciously affect my hiring decisions and result in fewer Hmong and Hispanics with poor or no English skills being hired? I´m pretty sure the answer is obvious, and the government is making it harder for Hmong and Hispanics so it isn´t even furthering its own agenda.

There is a pathology in the White House and in the Democrat Party. In trying to make America "fair" for all, they lace up a straitjacket on her.

Simple solution: Hire only English speaking nationals without an accent and pay a good wage, not in cash, and subsequently pay your taxes.

But then who´s going to brain cattle? Jessie Jackson? But then, again, hire only English speaking nationals.

Don´t place all the blame on barack. The EEOC is a nutty, ,independent agency, no matter who the president is.
They sued a lamp manufacturer in Chicago who hired workers from the neighborhood, and the neighborhood was Hispanic. EEOC said the employer hired too many hispanics, and not enough blacks.
The owner closed up his shop.

I have lived in Germany, Spain and Turkey. I have traveled to and through many other countries. They all spoke, wrote and had signage in their own languages. I was expected to learn and adapt. It is not unreasonable to expect people who want to live and work here to be able to speak enough English to function.

Liberals. (Deleted by Taste Police) I am so sick of not understanding customer service reps in person or worse over the phone who really can´t speak English. Today, asking for directions from the Asian at the help desk I was instructed to "go upstayah" with a pointing gesture. I didn´t even bother to ask "where" "upstayah." Who hired this creature? We all know darn well who.

I have a problem with non-English speakers hiring only people from their home country. Why isn´t that discrimination ?

(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch today released a new batch of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) email documents revealing that under former IRS official Lois Lerner, the agency seems to acknowledge having needlessly solicited donor lists from non-profit political groups. According to a May 21, 2012, memo from the IRS Deputy Associate Chief Counsel: “such information was not needed across-the-board and not used in making the agency’s determination on exempt status.” Later, in her May 10, 2013, remarks in which Lerner first revealed in response to question she planted about the IRS targeting of conservative groups, she conceded that the requests

The federal government has sent more than 37,000 illegal immigrant children to adults in every part of the U.S. who claimed to be their guardians during the first seven months of 2014, data from the Department of Health and Human Services show. But tens of thousands more are languishing in 116 shelters operated with taxpayer dollars in at least 16 states. U.S. Customs and Border Protection says more than 66,000 unaccompanied children were apprehended after crossing the border illegally between October 1, 2013 and the end of this August – an 88 per cent increase over the last fiscal year

For years, Anthony Zinni, a retired Marine General who once ran U.S. Central Command, blistered the administration of George W. Bush for its handling of Iraq. Now Zinni is teeing up on President Barack Obama´s approach in Iraq, saying he is “worried” by Obama´s cautious approach to the current crisis and the Sunni insurgent group Islamic State. “My God, we are the most powerful nation in the world,” says Zinni, who was widely reported to have been passed over for the ambassadorship to Iraq in 2009 by Obama. “This is a moment we have to act.

Activist groups are applauding an expected Justice Department decision to launch an expansive civil rights investigation into police activities in Ferguson, Mo. Ahead of an official announcement from Attorney General Eric Holder, which could take place as early as Thursday afternoon, civil rights groups are hailing the federal investigation as a major victory for those sharply questioning the circumstances surrounding the mid-August shooting and killing of teenager Michael Brown by a policeman in the St. Louis suburb. "Our Ferguson-area community stood united in the face of injustice and brutal repression by police who were supposed to protect and serve us,”

Awkward. Just a week after President Obama said that he didn’t have a strategy to fight the Islamic State, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin E. Dempsey said that the military has one and it was ordered up by the commander-in-chief. During a Facebook town hall, he said, “At the president’s direction, we have developed a military strategy with a series of options on how we can initially contain, continue to disrupt, and ultimately defeat ISIL.” His comment came after Obama, traveling overseas, tried to explain his “no strategy” statement this week. But in that comment, he specifically said that his

Wasserman Schultz did not apologize to Walker or other Republicans, but rather doubled down in her line of attack on Walker. “That shouldn’t detract from the broader point that I was making that Scott Walker’s policies have been bad for Wisconsin women,” Wasserman Schultz said. “Whether it’s mandating ultrasounds, repealing an equal

A sickening photograph has emerged of a tiny baby lying on an ISIS flag surrounded by guns and hand grenades. The chilling image is the latest photo believed to have been posted by militants fighting in Syria and Iraq as part of their online propaganda campaign. It shows the child - who appears to be less than six months old - lying on its back on the black flag now associated with the group terrorising the Middle East. Where other babies its age might have soft toys scattered around them, the child has been cynically positioned next a Kalashnikov rifle, a pistol and hand grenades.

A U.S. security team in Benghazi was held back from immediately responding to the attack on the American diplomatic mission on orders of the top CIA officer there, three of those involved told Fox News’ Bret Baier. Their account gives a dramatic new turn to what the Obama administration and its allies would like to dismiss as an “old story” – the September 11, 2012 Benghazi attacks that killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans. Speaking out publicly for the first time, the three were security operators at the secret CIA annex in Benghazi – in effect, the

After three days of deliberations, the seven men and five women who heard weeks of gripping testimony about the McDonnells’ alleged misdeeds acquitted the couple of several charges pending against them--but nevertheless found that they lent the prestige of the governor’s office to

President Obama said Wednesday that the federal government has authenticated a video showing the beheading of American journalist Steven Sotloff at the hands of Islamist militants, and the U.S. objective now is to “degrade and destroy” those militants so they no longer pose a threat to the civilized world. Speaking at a press conference alongside Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves in the Estonian capital of Tallinn, Mr. Obama seemed to lay the groundwork for expanded U.S. action against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, also known by the acronyms ISIL and ISIS.

The culprit is the warming seas - and in particular the Gulf of Maine, whose waters are heating up faster than 99 percent of the world´s oceans, scientists say. Long-established species of commercial fish, like cod, herring and northern shrimp, are departing for colder waters.

Rudy Giuliani has plans to change golf. The former mayor, a strategic adviser to the PGA, says he wants to make the game “simpler” by shortening rounds to 12 holes. “We have to make it simpler and easier. Let’s shorten the course and make playing 12 holes instead of 18 holes the norm,” Giuliani declared in a Hamptons magazine cover story with golfer Raymond Floyd. “I’ve played tennis for 20 years, and I’ve never played five sets like the pros do,” he explained. “I’ll play three sets with my pals.

The Islamic community demanded an apology after a state representative posted on Facebook to be "wary of Muslim Americans" and then shared a link about the ISIS brutality in the Middle East. State Rep. John Bennett of Sequoyah wrote the comments on Monday night. Oklahoma´s Council on American-Islamic Relations called on Republican Party leaders to denounce the comments on Wednesday.
